Preparing our students with skills and knowledge for success in college, career, and citizenship.
Puget Sound Skills Center (PSSC) serves high school juniors and seniors interested in specialized career and technical learning. PSSC offers 16 programs, from aerospace manufacturing to digital animation to fashion design to certified nursing assistant and many more.
Our students earn high school and college credits in a hands-on, workplace-oriented environment. PSSC students graduate with job-ready skills, the opportunity to earn certifications, and a jumpstart on further college and career training.
Students spend half of their school day in their home high schools, and half their school day at PSSC. Students enrolled in the Aeronautical Science Pathways program will meet after school at The Museum of flight.
PSSC is one of 14 skills centers in Washington state, offering high-quality, tuition-free technical and professional training. Operated by Highline Public Schools, PSSC serves students from 22 partner high schools in Highline, Federal Way, Tukwila and Tahoma school districts.
